We are a Roman Catholic community within the Archdiocese of Newark, made up of richly diverse cultures and ethnic backgrounds. We are Disciples of Christ fed by the Word and Eucharist in an evolving community. We seek to live the mission of Christ: serving the Lord by serving one another through our living faith, and sharing the commitment of resources and energy of the Holy Spirit.
